    8/6/20 Queens 10-75 Box 1365

    Pure guess . . . at 20 kt, about an hour. Top speed of that boat is 40 kt . . . . but it would be crazy to think they could do that responding to this incident. 20 kt might be too high. M3 is much closer.

    6 Worcester FFs were killed on Dec 3, 1999 in a cold storage warehouse fire. Code 3 did a memorial engine in their memory. For a department the size of Worcester, that's a HUGE loss.

    Welcome to the looney bin, Stoch. One of the few places around where somebody of Willy D's rank and experience gets treated just like (or maybe worse than) a proby. :rolleyes: ;) :eek: And Dan (Johnny Gage)'s posts make super reading, along with most of the topics in the History section.

    San Diego Navy Ship Fire 7/12/20

    I hate to see this. Can't help remembering the USS Constellation fire. Hope it's nowhere near that bad. :confused:
